It's like my pair 3. And they also seem to have paired up.
The males of pairs 1 & 4 still have to sleep outside the pot.
Pair 2 seem to have paired up too but that is less of a surprise because the female is actually a sexually mature female. Those will accept a new male quickly.

I have had one. It's pictured in one of the photos I posted above. It was fairly hardy and an aggressive eater of mysis shrimp.

They say they are hard but mine went from the store to the DT and has been in the same spot forever, never had a problem with him. For some reason I have good luck with nems, now fish are another thing, they just don't like me

At Baja Reef they had those kind of mated pairs too but they were much more expensive and not precisely the color forms I wanted, at least not both. I prefer to build my own pairs.

I'm gonna try another crispa as soon as my new tank is set up and I have again some free capacity. By my experience they are hardy if you can get one that isn't bleached completely.

Crispa is Sebae. Ritteri is a natural host but I am 99% positive your clowns will lose their black in a Ritteri. It's why I am going to stay away from a Ritteri. Wild true percs are more likely to lose their black than captive bred clowns.

According to Fautin & Allen H. crispa is also a natural host for A. percula. Though I've never seen underwater pictures of a crispa with percula in it.
It might be because crispa has one of the largest numbers of clownfish taking it as host and all the clarki & Co will easily chase the smaller percula away.

Most stores around us carry Crispas, they are very common. If you go on a buying quest try to avoid bleached ones. If you see one that looks tan in color and is in overall good shape then it might work for you.

Yes, I have heard that many times but just like you I have never seen actual evidence to support that assertion.

You gotta give me a list of the stores that have the good stuff down south so I can check them out the next time I get there.

Gigantea, Haddoni, Malu, possibly long tentacle. The ones that cause the most color loss are Magnifica (Ritteri) and bubble tips.

S. gigantea is the natural host that actually increases the black. S. haddoni and mertensii also cause melanism in several clownfish and percula may readily accept them.
